With the timing of Easter this year having it fall only two weeks before Mother's Day, I feel like stores aren't sure what to do about decorations.
Do they focus on brightly-colored bunnies and candy and grass? Or should they have more pastel flowers and hearts? It seems to me that quite a few have elected to do a combination of both, which has ended up with displays covered in jelly beans and boxed chocolates that are great... for kids.
When it comes to moms, we deserve real chocolate. The kind that is handcrafted and a luxurious experience from the moment it touches your tongue... if not before, due to the delicious smell. Which is why it's time to forgo the prepackaged, came-from-a-box-leftover-from-Valentine's-Day treats for Mom and instead give her something for Mother's Day that she is sure to love: mouth-watering handmade chocolate from Kaitlin & Kylie's.
I had the extreme pleasure of writing a gourmet chocolate review for Kaitlin & Kylie's back in January and to say that I enjoyed it is a pretty big understatement.
Christina's ten years of chocolate-making experience results in a combination of her talents, top-notch ingredients, and beautiful, 100% recycled packaging that is very difficult to put down once you've had a taste. Offering goodies such as Gourmet Dipped Apples, Chocolate Drizzled Pretzels and, of course, her incredible Chocolate Cups, there is something for every individual taste.
I think memories of this review still show up in my dreams every now and again...
But for Mother's Day, Kaitlin & Kylie's has an even more amazing way to enjoy a variety of delectable treats in an absolutely beautiful display.
Meet the Mother's Day Fit for a Queen Sampler.
One pound of handmade, fresh-to-order goodies, this sampler includes everything Mom could ask for... and more. Even better, it is customized exactly to her liking!
Start with selecting any of Kaitlin & Kylie's chocolate drizzled mini bundt cakes...
Then add up to four different kinds of assorted chocolates from the Signature or Nut Lover's Collections...
Finally, finish up by choosing any of the gourmet popcorn or pretzels...
Packaged in their signature white box and decorated with purple ribbon and beautiful fabric orchids, there is even a place for a personalized message right on the label. Really, is there anything more that you could ask for in a perfect gift? All I would want with this is a comfortable chair and some peace and quiet and to sit back and enjoy the deliciousness!
Well, maybe there is one way to make this gift a little better... how about a discount? Right now the Mother's Day Sampler is on sale for 20% off its retail price of $49.99!
